    Post Help with overclocking a 980x and Asus P6T

    Hello
    My old 980x CPU is starting to show its age and I'd like to overclock at this point to something very stable over the long term. Ive overclocked before to 3.8ghz but I'd like to go s little higher now if possible. I've read people hitting 4.3-4.5ghz but I'm doubtful if that's going to be stable over the long term. I'd be happy hitting 4-4.2ghz.

    CPU: Intel Core i7 Extreme 980x 3.33ghz
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX 670 2048MB DDR5
    Motherboard: Asus P6T SE
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 12GB DDR3 1600 MHz
    SSD: Samsung 256GB 840 Pro
    Audio: Asus Xonar DX PCIE 7.1

    Wondering if anyone could post their bios settings for the P6T motherboard or another Asus as they are usually closely related please?

    oof, its been a while since I've overclocked a westmere. Unfortunately I never used that motherboard and I think few around here are using anything of that vintage to give you current settings.

    I suppose that you would be better off looking at getting a better video card. 980X is an outstanding CPU, but your GPU is long in the tooth.
